LB's Guide to Coming Out MultiThis is a guide for coming out to friends, family, and other folks as multiple. It is specifically meant for folks who do not have a support system in place yet, and are just coming out of the closet. We hope that this makes the process easier. These rules are loose, and there are exceptions to every one of them; use your judgment.More Like This
Before You Uncloset
1. Think of your reasons WHY you are uncloseting. Obviously, freaking out the easily-freaked-out can be entertaining, but it's not a good reason to go disclosing what can be diagnosed as a mental illness. Uncloset for a good reason: because you have to tell somebody, and you think they'll be able to support you. If your internal crew is in deadlock over even deciding whether to do it in the first place, try to find a way to come to a solid decision; the last thing you need is for an internal fight to ensue in the middle of what's already a stressful situation.
